Scholarships are available to students at MHS at the local, regional, and national level. Money is generally awarded on the basis of academic achievement, other achievements within school or outside of school, or by special circumstances. Financial need is sometimes a consideration.
For questions regarding scholarships, please contact Krystal Salzmann, School Counselor and Scholarship Coordinator at email@example.com or (715) 387-4332 x 3
*Many local scholarship applications are in Google Doc format. Students must be logged in with their school Google Account to access them.
We encourage all students and families to apply for financial aid through the FAFSA (Free Application for Student Aid). Many scholarships rely on the EFC (Expected Family Contribution) number to determine financial need, and will ask for that information on their applications. If you have any questions about FAFSA as it relates to scholarships, please contact Mrs. Salzmann.
